Urbanized watersheds offer technical and administrative challenges for implementation of stormwater control practices to achieve the necessary regulatory requirements. This situation also demands innovative and cost-effective solutions that go far beyond the traditional stormwater goal of meeting the pre and post-development runoff conditions for design storms. A holistic watershed-focused approach is necessary to develop optimal solutions that balance the hydrologic, ecologic and geomorphologic goals.

In this paper, specific technical and other considerations that typically govern new or redevelopment initiatives and water quality improvement programs in New York City are discussed. A case study is presented to highlight the specific issues encountered and innovative and cost-effective solutions developed.
